LUKE MARC HUGHES | Drums & Percussion

ABOUT

 

Originally from the small Welsh town of Usk, I picked up the sticks at the early age of 6 after being in complete awe of one of the drummers I had seen on Top Of The Pops. From there on I began playing on pots & pans in the kitchen to pubs and clubs at the age of 14 with various bands whilst achieving a distinction in my grade 8 drum kit.

Now based in South London I’ve been lucky enough to work with some of the UK’s biggest artists and play some amazing and iconic venues around the world. Recent work includes British singer/songwriter Tom Odell touring and promoting his top 10 album ‘Wrong Crowd’ (Sony) worldwide with festival slots at Glastonbury, T in the Park, PinkPop, V Festival, Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Fuji Rocks etc and TV including Jimmy Fallon, The Late Late show with James Corden, Top Of The Pops, Graham Norton, The Voice, The Today Show New York and more. Other recent artists include Catherine McGrath as her Drummer & Musical Director working on her tours and promo and also Scottish singer Lewis Capaldi on his most recent tour.

I’m a versatile musician who always puts the song and artist first. With an easy going personality I enjoy being part of a project and always continue to push myself musically.
